Here is a list of the main parts of this site:
1) Physics and mathematics
2) Software project to make a better world
3) Philosophy (about religion and more)
4) My PhD work on
Vassiliev invariants of links (on another page - that will only
interest mathematicians specialised in knot theory -
something of this work remains to be better written and published
but I do not intend to make more research in this direction in the
Take-off towards mathematical physics
is the title of my site in French, and reflects the largest part of it.
I wrote there a new presentation of Special
Relativity theory, with long explanations of how to understand this
theory intuitively using the spatial intuition to represent time. Then
I wrote presentations of relativistic mechanics, statistical mechanics
and entropy, and an introduction to quantum mechanics with the EPR
paradox. Also, I presented affine geometry and some concepts at the
foundations of mathematics.
See here my introduction to quantum physics.
The objective is to provide a deep and efficient understanding, so as
to give interested students the means to learn them more rapidly than
in the usual curriculum.

I a written some texts of philosophy in French, with only the below translated
Here are the translated texts:
Criticism of Neale
Donald Walsch's Conversations with God
Criticism of the Zeitgeist movement
Criticism of the
foundations of Evangelical Christianity (with differents parts
in linked pages - incomplete translation from the French)
Antispirituality site with a global presentation of my worldview (a rationalist one, answering to many essential questions that religions deal with)
The cult of the violent social paralysis
Singles Union, with a series of texts about the problem of loneliness.
In French I have many other texts, of maths, philosophy, economics...
Here are a few examples:
- My story together with many thoughts about the sense of life
- One metaphysics text (concepts of metaphysics about God and immateriality of the soul, addressed to the atheists that are
interested to put in clear what this means);
- A text on chance, freedom and destiny. In particular, some argumentation about
the role of chance in involuntary celibacy and its injustice is

For girls that may be interested to write me I put more
info on myself here.
Note (december 2007): I ALWAYS answer EMAIL MESSAGES (well, possibly
except if a Christian person wants to reconvert me) but I NEVER answer ANYTHING THAT IS NOT AN EMAIL MESSAGE, like an invitation to register somewhere. If you did not
receive a reply after you wrote me, it means that there is a technical
problem with email. Please make sure that your return email address is
working. (In case it is my gmail account that deletes messages, you can drop me a message in facebook (profile.php?id=1071518302), though it's not my normal way of communicating). Thank you.
